The Steel Foundation believes that a highly trained, skilled and educated workforce is essential to meet the challenges of the 21st century. For managers to succeed in today's ever-changing business environment they must have a well-rounded technical knowledge, a thorough understanding of general business practices, and formal training in basic leadership and management skills.

The Steel Foundation is working with the steel industry to develop and offer timely, practical, industry focused training and education programs, utilizing the best instructors available. These programs are affordably priced and conveniently scheduled at state-of-the-art conference facilities. Designed primarily for supervisors and middle managers, these programs are appropriate for salaried personnel working in areas such as plant operations, maintenance, engineering, quality assurance, safety, finance, sales, marketing and administration. These programs are also of value to steel industry contractors and suppliers.

Innovative ideas must come from the new generation of students. Accordingly, the Foundation awards college scholarships, available in the United States and Canada, to provide these students a helping hand. In fact, over $50,000 is allotted annually for undergraduate students. Most awards are renewable for four years of education. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2000-2001 academic year.

Also, AISE has established memorial funds for annual grants to students at Carnegie Mellon University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Pennsylvania, and Rose Hulman Institute of Technology. Please contact these schools for additional information.

During the past decade, technology has advanced at a remarkable pace. As a result, completion of the 11th Edition of The Making, Shaping and Treating of Steel is a high priority project. Once completed, everyone can have access to the latest steelmaking technology with this handy reference series. The new edition will be published in a series of volumes over the course of the next several years.

The first volume titled Steelmaking and Refining was published in September 1998. Edited by Professor Richard J. Fruehan, Carnegie Mellon University, this book includes 13 chapters and 760 pages.

The second volume titled Ironmaking was published in November 1999. Edited by David H. Wakelin, LTV Steel Co., this book includes 11 chapters and over 800 pages.

The Casting, Flat Products and Long Products, are in the development stages and will be ready for publication during late 2000, 2001, and 2002, respectively.

Order your copy of The Making, Shaping, and Treating of Steel, Steelmaking and Refining Volume for US$95. For those who are still interested in the comprehensive 10th Edition, covering 53 chapters and over 1,500 pages, copies are still available at the low price of $125. Published in 1985, this valuable reference covers all aspects of steelmaking processes, practices, equipment and technologies of the 1980's. It will continue to be available for sale, as it is last edition containing all of the steelmaking processes in one binding.
